According to the latest monthly report from US market research firm NPD Group, Switch is now the best-selling console for both April and 2022 year-to-date.
Elden Ring - the VGC review
On Tuesday, Nintendo said global lifetime Switch shipments had reached 107.6 million units. While the console is closing in on PS4’s lifetime shipments of 117 million, in the US it has now surpassed sales of Sony’s last-gen console.
On the software front, Elden Ring was April’s second best-selling game. It remains the top-selling game of 2022 so far and is now the best-selling title over the 12-month period ending April 2022, overtaking Call of Duty: Vanguard in dollar sales.
It is also already the second best-selling game of 2022 and the sixth best-selling game of the 12-month period ended in April.
The only other new entry in the software top 20 in April was Nintendo Switch Sports, which charted at No.5 based on physical sales alone (Nintendo doesn’t provide digital sales data).
